Preface: In asking this question, I am not soliciting for security advice. I don't want to hear that the thing that I should not do the thing that I seek to do.
Now that Google no longer allows "less secure app", I am stuck without a good non-web way to access my email. Google's changes are incredibly bothersome inconvenient.
Is there some way to allow an email client to connect to Gmail WITHOUT having to enable/use two-factor authentication? I remember reading about some clients using OAuth something or other that is setup by the client opening an embedded browser window to login. Am I thinking of something that actually exists?
